It's time for President Obama to round up the terrorists among us...

Domestic terrorists who threaten to overturn our elected government and install a theocracy. Domestic terrorists who will not abide by the decisions of our highest courts. Domestic terrorists in Congress who are holding hostage the smooth functioning of our government to extort concessions that they cannot win in fair democratic elections. Domestic terrorists who have pledged their fealty to shady special interests like Grover Norquist and the Koch brothers.

I demand that they be arrested and imprisoned now! Take then to the FEMA/Walmart processing centers. Ferry them in the Blue Bell ice cream trucks to the prison camps. Now is the time!

How would you rate Donald Trump's face?

Since Trump is rating everyone else's appearance, I thought it would be instructive to get some feedback on the Donald's visage.

My rating is "Butt Ugly."

Any thoughts?

Chris Christie gets closer to an indictment...

United Airlines CEO canned as probe into Bridgegate crony, David Samson, heats up.

Late Update: We've just updated the piece. This part should be interesting ...
On at least one occasion, August 23, 2013, Chris Christie and David Samson together met with United CEO Smisek to discuss this arrangement. Two months prior to that meeting, and two months after signing of the new lease at Newark, thirteen United executives donated a total of $31,500 toward Christie’s re-election effort.
